(While being escorted to the room, we noticed a doctor studying x-rays. In a little while, that same doctor, the surgeon, came in and said, “I want to take some additional x-rays because the MRI did not show what the previous x-rays had indicated. Now in the same building, in the same x-ray room, with the same x-ray equipment, they took four more x-rays with a couple new positions. I wondered what the Lord was doing, but I knew He was in control. After a time, the surgeon returned with the verdict. He sat and stated,”
You have MINOR degenerative disks which is NORMAL for your age. I recommend physical therapy to strengthen your stomach and back muscles.
“I just sat there blown away.
What did he say? I thought to myself. I said,” What do you mean?
Don’t I need surgery? ” He said, “No, no, you don’t need surgery.”
I said, “But, we were told that I would need to have three disks and several spurs removed immediately. And, you are saying that I don’t need surgery at all? ” “Yes, you just need to build up your body strength and learn how to bend, stand, and pick up things properly. If you consistently do the exercises and discipline yourself to maneuver as the therapist recommends, you can live the rest of your life without back pain. ” My husband and I were stunned. We knew the Lord would heal me, but we could not get over how fast He moved this big boulder out of our life. My husband was looking very tired from waiting on me for just the four or five days that I was at my worst and could do little for myself. He told me later, he had been preparing himself mentally for taking care of me extensively for a period of six weeks after back surgery. Now, we had dodged the bullet Miraculously in a matter of a few seconds. The surgeon’s words were like Grace pouring from his lips. We knew the Lord, our sweet Savior, who promises in His Word healing of all sorts, had just performed a wonderful Miracle for us. Back in the ca ow, I phoned the physical therapy office and they could take me that very day in a couple of hours. We were astonished how fast and smoothly the Lord had worked all this out. MONDAY, I saw the doctor, had x-rays, TUESDAY, MRI, WEDNESDAY, results, THURSDAY, saw the surgeon, went to my first physical therapy session, FRIDAY and SATURDAY, back to work a couple of hours.
My sweetheart and I were almost in a daze for three days. In a few seconds, our life was back to normal. Oh my Lord, only You could have done this for us! You are so faithful, so true to Your Word! If only we wouldn’t doubt You. If only we would BELIEVE what You say deep deep in our hearts. The key to receiving Miracles is to keep our FOCUS on You, to TRUST You, even THANK You for what’s going on no matter how devastating it may be. You are bigger than any problem we could ever have and You look out for Your faithful children…..not perfect children, but faithful children. T.Y.J.)
FOCUS on You, TRUST You, even THANK You for what’s going on no matter how devastating it may be.
